Base Brands’ Reduce Smash Can has earned a place as a finalist in the International Design Excellence Award competition, sponsored by the Industrial Design Society of America. The Smash Can, chosen as one of only 24% of the total 1651 entrants, is part of Base Brands’ Reduce line of eco-friendly housewares.
The Smash Can is a heavy-duty 10.5-gallon stainless steel trash can with an easy-to-use compacting disk built into the lid. Consumers push down on the lid handle to compact their garbage, without exposing themselves to harmful bacteria.
Category finalists will be selected by a jury of design experts to receive either Gold, Silver or Bronze award; winners will be notified the week of April 19.
